April 9, 2021 was Drop Everything And Read (D.E.A.R.) in honor of famed author Beverly Clearly. High Road School at Choptank Elementary students will read a book for 30 minutes and just enjoy following along with the characters of their book. Students were encouraged to dress up as their favorite book characters as an added layer to the fun. Zhialee couldn’t think of one so Ms. Suzy dressed up as Ms. Frizle for him. They read The Magic School bus together!
